Monaco moved up to third on the Ligue 1 podium with the win at the end of a crazy game in Nice (3-2), having been unbeaten at home until now, but remain in second place with Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday 11 February. closing of the 21ste during the day
Monaco coach Adi Hutter was under pressure before this meeting. And his team responded with their weapons and weaknesses. The Principality team was generous, fun, talented, but also mentally deficient when leading and playing in numerical advantage.
A huge banner in the parking lot of Monaco “get off your ass” Of course, it was translated by Dimitri Rybolovlev. Together with his daughter, the Russian billionaire attended his club’s match for the third time in a row, the first in almost 13 years of his presidency. He suffered, but he won.
Because Monaco had to take the lead three times to win. A brilliant brace from Denis Zakaria and Aleksandr Golovin allowed the Principality side, who have been in poor form recently, to get themselves back into the Champions League race. With 38 points, the club is now one step behind Nice. And it’s Paris Saint-Germain, 11 points ahead of Aiglon, who played very well on the day.
Double from Zakaria
“Nice” played to overcome the opponent, the start of the match was intense and high-level. Even without scoring, Wisam Ben Yedder and his team showed a destabilizing ability that is rarely seen in recent outings. Also, when Denis Zakaria, from 25 meters, shot the first Monegasque into the top corner, Rouge et Blanc took a logical advantage (1-0, 16).e).
Since then, as often this season. Monaco retreated. And above all, Nice did not deviate from its principles: to push the opponent and hit the back. Cornered on the right side, Monaco finally misses. Launched deep by Dante, young Tom Luchet passed Kehrer before collapsing in the area. Gaitan Laborde converted the penalty from the left and deservedly equalized for the Eagles (1-1, 37).e).
In the second half, Nice came back strongly, but again Zacharia designed it and the Monegasques took the lead once again (1-2, 50).e). In the process, Dante was sent off after VAR intervention (55e). However, Nice did not give up. From Sanson’s corner, Gessand dominated Salissu with a header to equalize and make the match one of the best of the season.
Nice, who can win, pushes again and again. But it was Monaco in a classic performance that defeated their opponents. Bulka still parried Jacobs’ first shot. But Golovin followed the victory well (2-3, 77e), which Nice fought until the end of seven minutes of extra time.
Lyon takes a deep breath
Brest, until 4e On the other hand, the place looks bleak after gnashing their teeth against Clermont (1-1), a good end and very happy not to go with one of the best formations of the elite.

It’s enough to prepare for the trip to AC Milan in the first leg of the Europa League play-offs on Thursday.
In the relegation race, Lyon almost crashed out again and fell again in a poor relegation clash against Montpellier, but Rooney’s club were rescued late in the match, first by his goalscorer Alexandre Lacazette and then by Maxence Caqueré (2). -1), the author of a beautiful shot under the crossbar. The improvement seen in recent weeks under Pierre Sage has been confirmed for OL, who are also benefiting from a number of winter recruits. Now 13, Lyon takes a deep breath.
Lorient also did well to beat Reims (9e) on Mustaar (2-0) and with the second success in a row (16).e and the dam operator). For Reims, Japanese footballer Junya Ito, who has been accused of sexually assaulting two women in Japan, has been started by Will Steele on his return to France following his national team’s elimination in the quarter-finals of the Asian Cup in Qatar. Nantes (12eIn turn, Toulouse earned a valuable victory (2-1) that eased the pressure around coach Jocelyn Gourvenec.
